CAA’s Services to Artists Committee invites artist members to participate in ARTexchange, an open forum for sharing work at the 2011 Annual Conference in New York. To be held on Friday evening, February 11, at the Hilton New York, ARTexchange is free and open to the public; a cash bar will be available.

The space on, above, and beneath a six-foot-long table is available for each artist’s exhibition of prints, paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, and small installations; performance, sound, and spoken word are also welcome. Previous ARTexchange participants have found that this parameter sparked creative displays, and the committee looks forward to surprises and inspiring solutions at the upcoming conference. Please note that artwork cannot be hung on walls, and it is not possible to run power cords from laptops or other electronic devices to outlets—bring fully charged batteries.

To participate in the New York event, please write to the ARTexchange coordinators with the subject line “CAA ARTexchange.” Include your member number and a brief description of what you plan to present. If you are presenting performance or sound art, spoken word, or technology-based work, including laptop presentations, please outline your plans. Artists will receive an email confirmation. Because ARTexchange is a popular venue and participation is based on available space, early applicants are given preference.

Participants are responsible for their work; CAA is not liable for losses or damages. Sales of work are not permitted. Deadline: December 17, 2010.
